( applause ) >> woodruff: this morning, republicans insisted they are giving no ground on that issue. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell said mr. obama missed an opportunity in his remarks on the looming spending cuts, known as the sequester. >> the president had the chance last night to offer a thoughtful alternative to his sequester, one that could reduce spending in a smarter way. that's what republicans have been calling for all along, and it's the kind of thing the house has already voted to do twice. we want to work with him to make that happen. but, instead, we just got gimmicks and tax hikes. just one more plan from the president that's designed to fail, so he can blame others when it does. >> woodruff: it's unclear how much of the president's plan can get through congress, but the white house says he will keep up the pressure, with stops in atlanta and chicago in the coming days. for a closer look at some of the

panetta said it would be irresponsible for the congress to allow it to happen. many of us agree, it must be avoided. but apart from that challenge in the next month, or series of months, the long-term outlook for the department of defense is that it must do more with less, and secretary hagel, if he is confirmed, will have that management task, and he is one of the people in this country who is almost uniquely qualified to carry it out. and i believe that he will with great distinction. he will take care of our men and women in uniform and strengthen our national defense, he will do what he thinks is right even if it's not popular, and he is, finally, as everyone has said, a good and decent man. i thank in particular senator mccain for his very compelling and telling comment during our consideration before the vote in the armed services committee. he said -- and i agree -- no one should impugn chuck hagel's character. he's a person of integrity and character. and i believe that he will have the respect at all levels of our defense, men and women who serve and sacrifice every day, men and
been changed. most dramatically with the use of the filibuster. the use of the filibuster, about 20 years ago when clinton came to office it kind of spiked. it's really spiked since 2009. this is taking a whole new direction. this is actually the third cabinet nominee that's been subjected to some kind of a filibuster, but the other two, one under reagan and one under bush, were totally symbolic. it was jesse helm that the cloture vote was 85-4. dirk kempthorn and bill nelson running -- >> i love when people name dirk kempthorn. >> this is -- i think the real dangerous precedent that's being set here, though, is let's say that this is partly lindsey graham posturing for 2014 in south carolina so he will eventually drop his objection and john mccain will go along. >> the mccain piece is interesting to me, though. a lot of people are saying watch where mccain goes. he has gone back and forth on this. an elder statesman of the senate who has respect for preer and the upper chamber. >> but he has such a strong personal relationship with lindsay graham, and lindsay graham is so personall
well outlined, mr. chairman. jack is no stranger to us. i met him there decades ago when i was a wide eyed congressman and he was a top aide for house speaker, tip o'neill. we became friends. he taught us a whole lot. i know that tip a tremendous influence on jack. it is clear that he shares the same work ethic and sense of duty. he shares another thing -- bipartisanship. speaker o'neill was renown for sitting down with president reagan and trying to work problems out. jack was heavily involved in that and continues to be. he is a bipartisan person who wants to be successful at working with both parties. you mentioned the issue with trust. there is no straighter shooter than jack lew. he is one of the most honorable, honest, and decent men in washington. when he gives you facts, they are backed up with research. from the time i knew jack when he started in tip o'neill's office, he would always outline both sides of the argument and give each without bias. he would tell you where he came down, but he always let you make your own judgment. that has propelled him to an extremely successf
, this is -- this could not be more shocking. tell us what we know about the events and how this comports with what you know of this famed athlete. >> andrea, i'm heart sick over this, that this beautiful woman is gone and that oscar pistorius, he is one of the iconic figures in the london games this summer. a couple of months before this last summer's olympics, i was -- i got to spend almost a week with oscar at his home at the place where this horrible incident occurred. it looked like it was a very good neighborhood. oscar certainly did have guns, and he used to talk about how, you know, at night he has got no legs. he kept guns in his bedroom and he obviously worried about that. i guess the gun problem in south africa is every bit as worse as it is in this country, maybe even more so. what we know so far is that he is in custody, and that there are reports that perhaps it was valentines day already in south africa when this happened. there are reports that maybe he thought that his girlfriend was a burglar, but those reports are not coming from the police, and they're adamant about that. we do also
